Cracking legs

Hi I'm new on here and was wondering if anyone had advice on a puppies back legs making cracking noises? I've got a 12 week old miniature dachshund and both her back joints in her legs are making pretty loud cracking noises....should I be concerned or is this normal?

Not normal - I'd definitely be taking her to the vet to have them examine her and check her hips and patellas (kneecaps). If it's only happening intermittently, try to get a video with the noises and how she's moving when they happen, to show the vet in case they can't reproduce the problem during the exam.
